Damn, it certainly has been awhile since I last posted, yet so much has actually happened. Usually I don't post because there isn't much to say; in this case I've just been really busy.

Last week, Jon and Megan got married in Great Bend. I wish I had the pictures to post, but I can't find the cable to hook my camera up to the PC. As soon as I do, they'll be here. Anyway, I was a groomsman. I felt busy, so I can only imagine what those two felt like. It was a very nice wedding. They're off in New York on their honeymoon right now, so I hope they're having a blast.

On Sunday, Adam, Kelly and myself went to the Cosmosphere. One of the things we saw was an IMAX film called "Island of the Sharks." The photography was amazing. I love seeing footage of sea creatures in the wild, so this was quite an experience. It made me resolve to get a goldfish as SOON as I'm settled in the UK this fall. :D

Well, it's been an eventful week. Have you ever been to a 24-hr Wal-Mart at five in the morning? Good times.

Put together an office chair and a new desk for my room. Moved the old PC to the living room as to be able to watch TV on it. It's a nice little setup now, between that and the home theater. Now, once I get my video capture card, it'll be sweet.

My birthday was yesterday (Happy birthday, Rick. Not that you ever read this!), and it was nice and quiet. In the afternoon, Mom made John's (in)famous chili and we ate in Great Bend for dinner. John even called from Sitges, which was a nice surprise. Adam came over in the evening and we watched old wrestling videos. Ah, the memories...

Since I know you all love graduation photos...

I figured it simplest to start with the family photo. It wasn't easy getting everyone together, I had to call for backups:

And then Gloria joined in:

But then we got it all sorted and everyone was happy as in the above photo. Even Mom couldn't help but smile:

But my favorite photo from the day captures the essence of the afternoon. The Campanile, the clear sky and Mom's relief of getting me out in four years:

We had one heck of a hail storm yesterday... The news reports said it was somewhere around 1.75" in diameter. All I know is they looked like golfballs, if not bigger...

Hard to believe it's been nearly two weeks since graduation. Feel's like it's been a lot less time, but I guess it's all fun and games in Ellinwood, KS, eh?

Quick movie update - "Troy" - Not worth it. "The Day After Tomorrow" - Worth it.

Still trying to get things sorted for grad school. Amsterdam rejected me on a basis of "motivation," butI can appeal the decision within six weeks time. I'm also applying to the Warwick program. Richard Dyer is on the faculty there. That would be so awesome. Fingers crossed.
